Shipping and transport
Shipping is basic process of transporting goods and cargo. Virtually every product ever made, bought, or sold has been affected by shipping. Despite the many variables in shipped products and locations, there are only three basic types of shipments: land, air, and sea. Transport covers infrastructure, vehicles, and operations. Infrastructure includes the transport networks (roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals, pipelines, etc.) that are used, as well as the nodes or terminals (such as airports, railway stations, bus stations and seaports). Vehicles include automobiles, bicycles, buses, trains, airplanes. Transport operations deal with the control of the system, such as traffic signals and ramp meters, railroad switches, air traffic control, etc, as well as policies, such as how to finance the system (for example, the use of tolls or gasoline taxes).

Carsales.com.au
Australia's No.1 Auto Website

An Australian member writes:

"This site and Drive.com.au are Australian based, but their research sections are fantastic for comparing features and specifications of makes of cars from all over the world, when you in the market for a car. I used these sites extensively when I bought a new car a couple of years ago, as I could compare any make of car available in Australia with any other make on a wide range of specifications - with just the facts; none of the sales talk. As a result I had a good knowledge of the pros and cons, and had made up my mind as to what I would and would not settle for long before ever I got seriously talking to salespeople at the dealership. The research pages would be as useful in New Zealand as they are in Australia, in every aspect except the $A price comparison."
